We have made a separate testnet version of Fantom Liquid Staking on Fantom Testnet (opens in a new tab)!
Anybody interested to test Liquid Staking without spending mainnet FTM, come and try it!

Make sure you have a small surplus of FTM to pay the gas fees for the staking transaction.
For Fantom Liquid Staking, Ankr deducts a 15% technical service fee from the accumulated rewards.
